A New Year – A New Relationship with Ourselves

This course asks the central question that ancient and modern, contemplative traditions have asked through the ages, “Who am I?” This question explores the common human experience of disconnect from the self. 

Drawing on Buddhist psychology and working at the level of our personal experience of waking up, our inquiry will focus on the experience of being “me."

This course is the first in the series of Basic Goodness courses. It includes talks, discussion, dialogue, and contemplations. It invites us into a genuine process of reflection and questioning.

Open to all (recommended preparation: Meditation in Everyday Life or Shambhala Training Level I). 

Running six consecutive Tuesday mornings from 10am to noon.
